    I had the virus that locks the desktop just to throw it out there and as much as I could find it was something "hidden window"

    But I try to load steam and it will not load to where I can access it and use the functions I get no sort of error, and when I alt ctrl del it it will be in the Proccesses tab as Steam.exe but yet its not able to play or do aynthing

    Ive tried to reinstall and repair a few times, that seemed to eb the closest I could get due to it would appear onto the bar at the bottom but then disapear.

    edit: I think it might be a cause of something when I try to reboot(and it only happens when Steam.exe is in the Proccesses tab) a Hidden Window, its not the shellcon that I know of, is there a fix?
